Yesterday Christian took Grace and Aiden to our county's field day. The purpose of this event is to introduce kids to outdoor sport such as archery, fishing, trapping, canoeing, firearms, and wilderness survival. With the numbers of youth hunters, fishers and trappers dwindling, the PA game commission is concerned that kids should be exposed to these traditions to keep them alive. Thus this FREE event was born, and what a blast it was!

There were a few hundred kids there, but it was highly organized and very informative and fun for the kids and Christian. Even though there were so many kids there, as you could see they got a lot of one on one instruction, which was awesome. We've been to some events where it was just masses of people and sort of a free for all. This was not one of those events.
